Duba Plains Camp sits in the heart of the Okavango Delta among a matrix of palm-dotted islands, flood plains and woodland on a 33,000 hectare private reserve. It is also the place that Great Plains Conservation co-founders, National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, chose for their home base.

Duba Plains prides itself on its extraordinary wildlife experiences and intimate exposure to the best of the best wildlife, from lions and leopards to elephants, lechwe, buffalo and everything in between. A recent guest captured it perfectly when he said, “I am not a religious person but I now understand that the Garden of Eden can now in fact be found at Duba Plains.”

Duba Plains Camp offers 5 bespoke tents and the 2-bedroom Duba Plains suite, designed to blend into the landscape and evoke the classic African safari style of the 1920’s. All the rooms are raised on recycled railway-sleeper decking and with stunning views of the surrounding floodplain and the steady stream of wildlife parading past. The camp’s main area consists of a raised dining room, comfortable lounge, interactive kitchen, wine cellar and library. The camp’s center point, the gathering place of all bush experiences, is the deck extending under the giant ebony trees. 

Experience & Activities

Wildlife drives (day & night) take place in Duba Plains’ specially designed Toyota Land Cruisers, aptly named ‘Swamp Vehicles’ due to their extra-high suspension, designed to traverse the floodplains. These are, of course, open-sided and customized for photographers (fold-down screens, raised roofs, photographic bars, multi-plug inverters). The schedule each day is flexible; from safari drives that continue into the night in search of nocturnal species to birding or catch-and-release fishing from a boat. Each guests tent also has the latest Canon camera and lenses as a package for guests to use or try out.


  • Suite: Duba Plains Camp offers 5 bespoke suites raised on recycled railway-sleeper decking with stunning views of the surrounding floodplain and the steady stream of wildlife parading past. Each tent has a lounge area and beautifully appointed en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double vanities and indoor and outdoor showers and a luxurious bath. There is also an environmentally friendly air-conditioning system over the bed. Enjoy your private verandah complete with plunge pool and shaded sala.
